Antisemitism in Universities

University of Wales Trinity Saint David

International Definition of Antisemitism


The University has not adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism.

The University has told Campaign Against Antisemitism: “The University has considered its approach to the IHRA definition of antisemitism in the context of the response to the definition elsewhere in the higher education sector and in other Welsh universities. The University is following the current practice across the HE sector in Wales, will continue to follow the debate and will respond as appropriate to Welsh Government guidance when received.”

This information was obtained after Campaign Against Antisemitism submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on 14th June 2023. On 7th July 2023, the University responded.

Students’ Union

When asked on 11th August 2020, University of Wales Trinity Saint David Students’ Union failed to confirm whether it has adopted the International Definition of Antisemitism.


No incidents have been reported to us, however we recognise that antisemitism is chronically underreported and it is possible that there are incidents that have not been reported. To report an incident, please contact us.

Jewish life on campus

The incidence of antisemitism on a university campus and how the university and its students’ union address antisemitism are matters of serious concern. At the same time, they do not represent the totality of Jewish life on any campus. For further information about Jewish life on campus, please contact the local Jewish Society or Jewish chaplain.

No student should have to endure antisemitism. Campaign Against Antisemitism provides specialist help to students who have experienced antisemitism, including free legal representation. For assistance with antisemitism on campus, please contact us.
